> Greetings, I hope this letter finds each of you well.
> My name is Jordy D. Stringer, and I am writing on behalf of the
> National Federation of the Blind of Ohio.
> In the great state of Ohio we are currently working to develop the
> association of blind students of Ohio, and we would love your help as
> we spread the word.
> this group of students will function as one of the local arms of the
> National association of blind students. The National Association of
> Blind Students, formed at the 1967 convention of the National
> Federation of the Blind in Los Angeles, California, is the longest
> standing of all the NFB’s divisions. Having built upon the work begun
> by a small group of students in a Los Angeles hotel room over four
> decades ago, NABS has grown to become one of the largest and most
> active divisions of the NFB. For over forty years, the National
> Association of Blind Students has not only shared the NFB’s positive
> philosophy about blindness with students of all ages, but also
> provided blind students with opportunities to take on leadership roles
> within the organization.
> We are looking for students who are excited about changing what it
> means to be blind, who have a positive outlook on blindness, and who
> like working as part of a team to be part of this growth.
> The Ohio association of blind students will discuss issues related to
> accessible instructional materials in college and higher education,
> adaptive technology, orientation mobility training, and a wide variety
> of other things that affect blind students.
> Our spring confrence call will take place on Wednesday April 27 at
> 7:00 PM EST, and I would be most grateful if each of you could spread
> the word.
> The call in information is as follows:
> Access code: 3572192
> followed by (#)
> If you have individuals who find that they are interested, please
> forward them my contact information directly.
> E-mail: jordystringer83 at gmail.com
> Phone: 317-629-4639
> If you have any more specific questions about this effort please don't
> hesitate to reach out to me.
> I very much look forward to connecting with the great students here in
> the state of Ohio and reconnecting with some of my former colleagues.
> Warm regards,
> Jordy D. Stringer, National federation of the Blind of Ohio
> The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the
> characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the
> expectations of blind people, because low expectations create
> obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life
> you want; blindness is not what holds you back.
